Lice Prevention – Proactive Measures

Teach your children that head lice spread  from head to head contact with an infested person. Combs, brushes, hats, and anything else that comes in contact with the head should not be shared.  Our oil repellent spray has peppermint oil in it. Lice don’t like its smell, and stay away.

Do Hair Blowers Kill Head Lice?

Conventional blow driers do not kill head lice. This is because they tend to mat the hair close to the head, effectively protecting lice from the effects of the moving, hot air. Hair dryers are also dangerously hot and can cause burns, especially if they are used to direct hot air for a long period of time on one location as is needed to treat head lice.

The AirAllé™ device is used by lice professionals who gently place the device’s applicator tip under the hair and against the head, moving its position every 30 seconds until the entire head has been treated.

The AirAllé device blows heated air through its applicator tip along the scalp and hair shafts at a higher flow (but much cooler temperature) than a hair dryer.

 

Head Lice Nightmare

So you spent a lot of time, and you spent a lot of money and you still have head lice. Why?

Reason 1: You have contracted a new case.                                                                  Reason 2: You never got rid of it in the first place.

It is very easy to think you got rid of lice because the lice shampoo you used may have a high kill rate, and you are no longer seeing bugs. Just because you don’t see bugs does not mean you ended the lice life cycle.

A professional lice removal service  will be able to remove all the lice and eggs you might miss when trying to ger rid of lice on your own.

Got Lice? Don’t go crazy!

So you got that note from the nurse “Your child has lice”. Now what? You can try getting rid of it by yourself, or you can call a professional lice treatment service.

What about the house? Remember that lice don’t fly or jump. More importantly they don’t embed themselves, so you can eliminate those that fell off someone’s head by spraying the furniture with a good enzyme cleaner.
